Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: In the beginning of the movie when the father brought the video game home for his son he called his son Kevin...that later become Alex. Did I miss something?
Question: I don't recognise the instant messaging tool used during the office scenes. Is it an actual software product typical of that decade or was it created for the film?
Question: A few minutes into the movie you see English troops all lined-up on the beach with no obvious means of evacuation. That leaves them very exposed to German gunfire and aerial attack. It would seem that the English soldiers would stay off the beach until actually called-up for evacuation. Not to mention the obvious requirement that some troops would have to stay off the beach to defend the evacuation area. How realistic are those scenes?
Question: When Esther is being taken to her new home, Sister Abigail is seen with her fingers crossed behind her back. Did she do this because she knew how evil Esther was and she wanted to keep that fact a secret, or because she knew Esther's secret and was actually lying about Esther in hopes of getting rid of her more quickly?
Question: Is the landscape around Rockport MA (where the film was shot) really that similar to that around Sitka AK (where the film is set)?
Question: At the very beginning, John and Louise stroll down a dock, get into a row-boat and start across the lake; but John dies of a heart attack half-way across, and Louise dumps his body into the water. Throughout this entire scene, John's transistor radio is warbling a rockabilly song that sounds Elvis-inspired (but it's not Elvis). What is the song and who sang it?Charles Austin Miller
Question: At the beginning of the film where were the bodies of the people that Simon killed? John said he searched the whole building but couldn't find anything so, how did the bodies appear after the building was destroyed? And why was John placed in cryogenic suspension? It seems a bit harsh to punish somebody especially since he was able to catch Simon.
